Have you given any thought to making Play "remoteable", like through an application like Rowmote?

The remote control functionality in Play is rudimentary, but it should work. If rowmote emulates the Apple remote then it should work. Since you asked, I assume you have tried and did not have any luck?

Gee, their website didn't list Play as one of the controllable apps. I'll try and see what happens.

OK, I tried. Nada. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but the other applications work OK.

OK, I will check with my Apple remote and make sure things still work. If so, we can work on rowmote from there.

I've received a patch from the author of Rowmote that should let it work with Play. I will post a new unstable build later today or tomorrow with the patch incorporated for testing.

Does this mean we can use Rowmote to control PLAY's volume control (NOT the computer volume control) and select and play songs from the PLAY library?
